We are a group of successful adult dyslexics and parents of dyslexic students in Austin, Texas working to form a new non-profit to create new, broadly impactful approaches to helping dyslexics reach their amazing potential.
Impact:Dyslexia is just getting off the ground and has some ambitious goals including:
- Creating highly effective, inexpensive and scalable programs to identify dyslexics, with an emphasis on children (as young as possible)
- Creating highly effective, inexpensive and scalable programs to de-stigmatize dyslexia and give dyslexics the emotional support necessary to live up to their amazing potential, with an emphasis on students and those that have fallen through the cracks like dropouts, prisoners and the homeless
- Developing effective methods to leverage successful dyslexic adults as mentors/role models for younger dyslexics and as donors
- Developing effective programs to inspire dyslexics into entrepreneurship
And, in the process, create the highest profile and most impactful dyslexia non-profit in the country among both the dyslexic community and the broader population.
I just thank you all, for your work in highlight the issues and trauma students go through in school feel left behind and less than because they don’t read and spell like the other children.
I am so happy Texas has passed a law to do detection tests by 1st grade Primary Education . I hope Spain, where I live, will follow your example. Are you aware of a Spanish researcher who did post Ph.d dyslexia research at Carnegie Mellon, Luz Rello? I recomend her site and resources https://www.changedyslexia.org/en
Thank you! We will investigate your suggestions. Please stay in touch.
